Motivated by an eastern spruce budworm outbreak traveling down from Canada, researchers in the School of Forest Resources at the University of Maine and colleagues in the U Maine Advanced Computing Group, catalyzed by a seed grant from the Northeast Cyberteam Program, have been applying machine learning techniques to map the evolving state of the forest to provide accurate and up-to-date information on forest as the outbreak develops.
Since its beginnings in1998, HPEC (the High Performance Extreme Computing Conference) has grown to become an annual fixture of the September High Performance Computing (HPC) calendar. Now the largest computing conference in New England and the premier conference in the world on the convergence of high performance and embedded computing, HPEC was originally hosted at Lincoln Laboratory, but since its 2012 incorporation as an official IEEE conference, HPEC has made its home at the Westin Hotel in Waltham, MA.
